October 4, 2010

Please be advised that night work to reline existing degraded sewers in side roads along Main Road (between Braemar Road and St James Road) is currently in progress. Night work is unfortunately necessary, as this work cannot be undertaken during the day as sunlight is damaging to the lining.

The contractor will show due consideration to residents and will as far as possible, attempt to keep machine and noise levels to a minimum.

Works to reline the sewers will be untaken between 21h00 and 05h00 from Mondays to Fridays for approximately the next 4 weeks.

This work is necessary to rehabilitate the existing sewers down the side roads.
